Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Markelle Fultz

  1. *Boston | Markelle Fultz | 6-4 | 190 | PG | Washington | 18

This kid is amazing. It's between him and Ball for the #1 pick but right now Fultz gets the edge. Could fit on the Celtics next to Isaiah.
Lonzo Ball

  2. *LA Lakers | Lonzo Ball | 6-6 | 190 | PG | UCLA | 19

Not a huge fan of him personally but you can't deny his talent. The local kid stays in the bright lights of LA. Yes, the Lakers already have 2 talented backcourt mates in D-Russ and Clarkson, but the talent here is too great to pass up. Go BPA with a potential franchise player and let Luke Walton figure out the depth chart later.
Jayson Tatum

  3. Phoenix | Jayson Tatum | 6-8 | 205 | SF | Duke | 19

Tatum has great size for a wing and excellent scoring prowess. The Suns are weak at the 3, and Tatum could be the perfect compliment to Booker & Bledsoe in the desert.
Malik Monk

  4. Orlando | Malik Monk | 6-3 | 200 | SG | Kentucky | 19

A top level athlete who can really play above the rim and is becoming a knock down shooter. Plays with poise and ice water in his veins. The Magic are rebuilding and searching for a real star to build around, Monk was money in the Tournament and could definitely go top 5.
Dennis Smith

  5. *Philadelphia | Dennis Smith | 6-2 | 195 | PG | NC State | 19

Quick, athletic playmaker who can get to the basket. The Sixers finally get a franchise PG to compliment their once-in-a-generation frontcourt players. Let's hope they don't screw it up and trade him away like they did with MCW, which of course set Philly back a few years and screwed up MCW's once promising career.
De'Aaron Fox

  6. New York | De'Aaron Fox | 6-3 | 175 | PG | Kentucky | 19

Fox's size, athleticism, passing and defense gives him a great platform to build off as a NBA prospect. The Knicks get a young promising PG of the future to pair with the Unicorn.
Frank Ntilikina

  7. *Sacramento | Frank Ntilikina | 6-5 | 190 | PG | France | 18

The top international player in the 2017 NBA Draft. Sacramento's rebuild post-Boogie Cousins begins. Some experts like BR's Jonathan Wasserman predict that Ntilikina will end up being the best PG in the stacked 2017 class, so the Kings get a great value here.
Josh Jackson

  8. Minnesota | Josh Jackson | 6-8 | 205 | SG/SF | Kansas | 20

A special talent who plays both ends of the court. An elite athlete with great competitive fire. Jackson could still very well go #1 so this is a significant drop but if Monk rises he could fall. Tom Thibodeau gets another young talented potential ROY.
Lauri Markkanen

  9. *Sacramento | Lauri Markkanen | 7-0 | 230 | PF | Arizona | 19

The best shooting big man in the draft, the Porzingis comparison has been tossed around. A lanky 7-foot European who can shoot it from deep. The Kings get a new frontcourt scoring threat.
Jonathan Isaac

  10. *Dallas | Jonathan Isaac | 6-10 | 210 | SF/PF | Florida St. | 19

Long and talented big, versatile, can hit the 3 and bring the ball up like a guard. A perfect low-risk/high reward modern NBA 4. Dirk has hinted that this was his final season, and there are several great PFs the Mavs could draft as a potential replacement.
Miles Bridges

  11. Charlotte | Miles Bridges | 6-7 | 230 | SF/PF | Michigan St. | 19

A powerful wing player with good elevation and an NBA body but an unrefined game. Projects as a small ball 4 at the next level.
TJ Leaf

  12. Portland | TJ Leaf | 6-10 | 225 | PF | UCLA | 19

Not a huge fan of Leaf, but the Blazers need frontcourt depth and he projects as the kind of big man Portland has stockpiled lately.
Zach Collins

  13. Detroit | Zach Collins | 7-0 | 230 | C | Gonzaga | 19

Projects best as a 2-and-done but could see him come out after his freshman season if Gonzaga makes it to the NCAA Championship.
Harry Giles

  14. Chicago | Harry Giles | 6-10 | 240 | PF/C | Duke | 18

A top 5 prospect at the start of the season whose stock was decimated by nagging injuries all season. Taj Gibson is in OKC and Nikola Mirotic has been shopped off and on. The Bulls are clearly trying to rebuild their PF depth chart.
John Collins

  15. Denver | John Collins | 6-10 | 235 | PF/C | Wake Forest | 19

Johnathan Motley

  16. Miami | Johnathan Motley | 6-9 | 230 | PF | Baylor | 21

Chris Bosh didn't play a minute last season and it's become apparent that his time in Miami is over. I really like Motley, he's one of my favorite prospects in the draft.
OG Anunoby

  17. Indiana | OG Anunoby | 6-8 | 235 | SF/PF | Indiana | 19

The Nets took a chance on Caris LeVert in last year's draft and he's emerged as one of their most talented young pieces. They're not competing for the postseason any time soon and are still just collecting assets, so they may hope that lightning strikes twice and gamble on Anunoby, a potential top 20 pick before his season ended early.
Isaiah Hartenstein

  18. Milwaukee | Isaiah Hartenstein | 6-11 | 245 | PF | Germany | 18

The recent rise of Jokic to NBA superrstar and lack of NCAA depth at PF/C could cause his stock to rise.
Bam Adebayo

  19. Atlanta | Bam Adebayo | 6-10 | 255 | PF/C | Kentucky | 19

Explosive and powerful player with a NBA body. Can really rock the rim. Lacks ideal height but has a lot of length.
Rodions Kurucs

  20. *Portland | Rodions Kurucs | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Latvia | 19

The Blazers will probably go draft-and-stash with at least one of their 3 first round picks.
Dwayne Bacon

  21. Oklahoma Cty | Dwayne Bacon | 6-7 | 220 | SG/SF | Florida St. | 21

Top 20 talent but no way he goes in the first round, major attitude problem. Selfish, thinks he's MJ and tries to do too much.
Luke Kennard

  22. *Orlando | Luke Kennard | 6-5 | 200 | SG | Duke | 20

A crafty offensive player with a sweet shooting stroke. Would be a nice piece off the bench for the Magic. He projects as an offensive specialist at the next level.
Ivan Rabb

  23. Toronto | Ivan Rabb | 6-10 | 220 | PF/C | California | 20

Rabb made a good decision returning for his sophomore season, he was a lottery pick in last year's draft and has already improved a lot, but falls due to heavy depth at the 4-5. Smooth athlete with a high basketball IQ. Gread hands & a solid skill set.
Mathias Lessort

  24. *Brooklyn | Mathias Lessort | 6-9 | 235 | PF | France | 21

Draft and stash. Brooklyn collects more assets.
Justin Patton

  25. Utah | Justin Patton | 7-0 | 230 | C | Creighton | 19

A big athletic center with impressive skills for his size. Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, and Derrick Favors are all free agents this summer and the Jazz obviously can't afford to keep them all. Utah plans to rebuild around Rudy Gobert for the future, so here is a promising prospect to back him up.
Sindarius Thornwell

  26. *Brooklyn | Sindarius Thornwell | 6-5 | 215 | SG | South Carolina | 22

Helped his stock during South Carolina's run to the Final Four.
Justin Jackson

  27. *Portland | Justin Jackson | 6-8 | 210 | SF | North Carolina | 22

Donovan Mitchell

  28. *LA Lakers | Donovan Mitchell | 6-3 | 215 | SG | Louisville | 20

Kostja Mushidi

  29. San Antonio | Kostja Mushidi | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Germany | 18

Likely draft-and-stash, a rock solid athlete who is a great defender and high IQ player. Though he is crazy full of talent, definitely needs another year in Serbia to refine his skills. Portland can wait.
Caleb Swanigan

  30. *Utah | Caleb Swanigan | 6-8 | 250 | PF/C | Purdue | 19

Deadly back-to-the-basket big man. Improved shooting from the perimeter. Huge wingspan compensates for a lack of quickness and explosiveness. The Magic get a development PF prospect with the pick they got after scrapping the failed Ibaka experiment.
Terrance Ferguson

  31. *Atlanta | Terrance Ferguson | 6-7 | 185 | SG | USA | 18

American swingman who's tearing it up Down Under. Originally committed to Arizona but in a move reminiscent of Brandon Jennings, decided to go overseas. Explosive athlete who can absolutely fly and can also light it up from three point land.
Cam Oliver

  32. LA Lakers | Cam Oliver | 6-8 | 235 | PF | Nevada | 20

Jawun Evans

  33. Phoenix | Jawun Evans | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

PJ Dozier

  34. Orlando | PJ Dozier | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | South Carolina | 20

The Kings need a young PG to pair with Boogie and build the team around. Ty Lawson is just a temporary solution. This kid has some first round buzz but I think he's too raw, he hasn't shown enough to warrant a first round selection.
Tyler Lydon

  35. *Sacramento | Tyler Lydon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Syracuse | 20

Allonzo Trier

  36. *Utah | Allonzo Trier | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Arizona | 21

Grayson Allen

  37. *Sacramento | Grayson Allen | 6-5 | 205 | SG | Duke | 21

Wesley Iwundu

  38. *Boston | Wesley Iwundu | 6-7 | 205 | SG/SF | Kansas State | 22

Josh Hart

  39. *Minnesota | Josh Hart | 6-5 | 215 | SG | Villanova | 22

The Spurs know how to pick em. Josh Hart's maturity and ability to thrive in a supporting role make him a perfect fit in San Antonio.
Thomas Bryant

  40. *Philadelphia | Thomas Bryant | 6-10 | 255 | C | Indiana | 19

Old school player with an NBA-ready body and good post game. You gotta feel bad for Brook Lopez, who has been the one constant on the Nets through their recent struggles.
Milenko Veljkovic

  41. Charlotte | Milenko Veljkovic | 7-1 | 230 | C | Serbia | 21

Jaron Blossomgame

  42. *Houston | Jaron Blossomgame | 6-8 | 220 | SF | Clemson | 23

Monte Morris

  43. *Utah | Monte Morris | 6-2 | 175 | PG | Iowa St. | 21

Dillon Brooks

  44. *New York | Dillon Brooks | 6-6 | 225 | SF | Oregon | 21

Jordan Bell

  45. *Houston | Jordan Bell | 6-8 | 225 | PF/C | Oregon | 22

Trevon Bluiett

  46. *Miami | Trevon Bluiett | 6-5 | 215 | SG/SF | Xavier | 21

Averages nearly 20 PPG for Xavier and recently dropped 40 in the Crosstown Shootout. I think he'll go in the 2nd round and make some scout look like a genius a few years from now. Could have a Trevor Ariza-type impact on an NBA team.
Jonathan Jeanne

  47. Indiana | Jonathan Jeanne | 7-1 | 210 | PF/C | France | 19

The Rockets are playing really well this year and can afford to gamble on a draft-and-stash again. Raw with a lot of upside on the defensive end. Could take a few years.
Nigel Williams-Goss

  48. Milwaukee | Nigel Williams-Goss | 6-3 | 195 | PG | Gonzaga | 22

Anzejs Pasecniks

  49. *Atlanta | Anzejs Pasecniks | 7-1 | 220 | C | Latvia | 21

Kadeem Allen

  50. *Oklahoma Cty | Kadeem Allen | 6-3 | 205 | SG | Arizona | 24

Isaiah Hicks

  51. Oklahoma Cty | Isaiah Hicks | 6-8 | 240 | PF | North Carolina | 22

Semi Ojeleye

  52. *Boston | Semi Ojeleye | 6-7 | 235 | SF/PF | SMU | 22

Alec Peters

  53. *Phoenix | Alec Peters | 6-8 | 235 | PF | Valparaiso | 21

Another one of my favorite prospects, I think he's really underrated. An excellent three point shooter and natural scorer with limited upside. My Jazz kept Gordon Hayward after his first run through free agency...I don't think we can afford to keep him the next time.
Jonah Bolden

  54. Washington | Jonah Bolden | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Australia | 21

VJ Beachem

  55. Utah | VJ Beachem | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Notre Dame | 22

Edmond Sumner

  56. *Brooklyn | Edmond Sumner | 6-5 | 185 | PG/SG | Xavier | 21

Out for the season with a knee injury. Needs to end up on a team that will let him recover then develop/where he won't have to play right away. Raptors are in their window and have Kyle Lowry so it'd be a nice fit.
Michael Fusek

  57. *Boston | Michael Fusek | 7-5 | 220 | C | Slovak Republic | 21

Marko Guduric

  58. *New York | Marko Guduric | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Serbia | 22

Alpha Kaba

  59. San Antonio | Alpha Kaba | 6-10 | 235 | PF | France | 20

Joel Berry

  60. *Utah | Joel Berry | 6-0 | 195 | PG | North Carolina | 21
